Welcome to Functional Medicine 411, a resource designed to guide you on your journey towards health and well-being through the principles of functional medicine. Welcome to Functional Medicine 411! I’m Scott Watkins and I am delighted to welcome you. This website is a resource that will guide you along your journey towards health and wellness through the principles and practices of functional medicine. After 25 years of working as a cancer expert, I have shifted my focus on preventing health issues before they occur. This blog is dedicated to providing valuable learning resources on functional medicine, which has profoundly affected my approach to wellness and health.

My journey to functional medicine

West Virginia University Medical School is where I began my extensive medical training. I completed my Residency in Radiation Oncology in Albert Einstein Center at Temple University Hospital. I am Board Certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology. Over the course of 25 years as a radiation doctor, I ensured that cancer patients were receiving accurate and effective treatment. As I approached my fifties, I noticed changes in my body that led me to look for new ways to improve my wellness.

I was struggling with pre-diabetes, weight gain, high cholesterol, and poor sleep despite my medical background. I was suffering from a busy schedule and unhealthy habits. My personal journey to better health led me to discover the Institute for Functional Medicine and functional medicine. I realized a proactive health approach, focusing prevention and addressing root causes of disease, was important not only for my patients but also for myself.

Functional Medicine: Its Importance

Functional medicine is an approach that focuses on identifying and treating the root causes of diseases. Understanding the complex balance of our bodies’ systems, as well as how lifestyle, diet and environment affect our health, is key. This approach has proven to be very effective in preventing chronic disease and promoting wellness.

Here are some areas where functional medicines can make a difference.

  • Gut health: We often refer to our gut as our second mind. Gut health is essential for overall health, as it affects everything from digestion to the mental state.
  • Inflammation Chronic: Inflammation chronic is an underlying factor for many diseases including diabetes, heart disease and autoimmune disorders. Functional medicine is aimed at reducing inflammation by dietary and lifestyle modifications.
  • Metabolic health: By focusing primarily on metabolic health, Functional Medicine helps to prevent diseases like diabetes from starting, by addressing insulin resistance and other issues early.
